Which side skirts? Opinions please!!

Recommended Posts

SORRY THIS SHOULD BE IN THE 350Z SECTION RATHER THAN 370Z

 

Hi all, so exciting times trying to pick which parts I want to restore the Z.

 

Pretty much decided on V2 rep front with Chargespeed rep rear and also a carbon V1 rear spoiler. Just really torn on which side skirts to go with that combo. 

 

Between either CS Bottomline rep or Nismo V1 rep:

Cheers.

I like the add ons but on standard skirts they’re a bit too subtle. I’d go with option 2 then add on universal carbon add ons, that’s what I’m doing

+1 for CS Bottom line. Saw one with those at Japanese Performance Show earlier this year, matched to the body colour. Looked amazing. I'll see if I can find the photo later.

Thanks for the comments. I was definitely leaning much more to bottomline but the more I look at the v1 is putting doubt in my mind. Just worried the bottom lines might be too subtle and get lost. 

 

Some photos tons would be great.

Turns out, I have a terrible memory... It's Tarmac Sportz's old one with the matched Bottom Line skirts:

Then this super-low beast had them in black

Cheers, both look awesome. 

 

Am seriously leaning towards the bottomlines now. But just wondering if it will flow with the CS rear.

 

Think the V1s will have to be the wider 3DCarbon version for it to work really.

As in the actual CS rear bumper, not the Bottom line pieces? Yea.. that might look a bit odd.

Yup, that's right, the actual CS rear bumper. So yes, it'll probably look a bit odd!! 

 

Oh well, happy to settle for the V1, it's not like they won't look good.

Might be harder with the design of the v1 skirts but shouldn’t be impossible. You’d need to check the lower edge. Would probably look better with flat side steps rather than these but would look awesome if you can manage

Cheers buddy. Will take a look into that at some point.

So! Have decided on the v1 skirts and hopefully going to get the work done at RT-Performance in the coming weeks - very excited to say the least.

 

Decided to go red for a respray.

 

My next dilemma is for the v2 front bumper, whether to have the lip sprayed in red or have a contrast in black. Will it look odd with just the front lip in black? The side skirts will be red, as don't think I like the look of them going back! Will get the grill done in black, door handles as well. 

 

Any thoughts and opinions very welcome!!

 

Cheers.

A lot go for the lip in black but I think it looks more balanced when colour coded. Black grille on the v2 looks good

That’s what I’m thinking too. Just think a black lip alone is a bit weird looking if the side skirts are colour coded. But equally not sure what I make of a red lip haha
